BREAKING: Muslim Leaders Decide Against Ground Zero Mosque
The Right Sphere ^ | 8/16/10 | Brandon Kiser

Posted on 08/16/2010 1:32:09 PM PDT by peggybac

fter weeks of heated debate over plans for an Islamic community center near Ground Zero – the site of the 9/11 attacks on New York - it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down, agreeing to move to a new site.

The decision follows a high-profile campaign against the project that included advertisements on New York buses showing images of the burning Twin Towers, an iconic landmark razed when al-Qaida terrorists flew packed passenger planes into them in 2001. The New York Republican party is also said to be planning a hostile television campaign.

Sources in New York said on Monday that Muslim religious and business leaders will announce plans to abandon the project in the next few days.

New York Governor David Patterson said last weekend that Muslim leaders had rejected outright his proposal to swap the site in for another in Manhattan.

Muslim student hit a Jewish, Democrat lawmaker in the face with a pie today. I think they want off the front pages now because the bad PR truth about Islam is getting out.

Is this accurate? Because they lost Harry Reid? Or because they gained Barack Obama?

Nevertheless, they get to build their mosque in Manhatten.

So while we’re all friends now, when do we get to build that pentecostal megachurch in Riyadh? When is that catholic cathedral going up in Dhahran?

They got their victory when Obama endorsed their idea to build a 9/11 Martyrs Victory Dome so he has some place to pray when he comes downtown.

I hope this is true.

To build a mosque on our holy ground was nothing more than a stinging slap in the face, especially in light of the fact that there are over a 100 mosques in New York City already.

They can back away all they want.

The damage is done, in terms of pissing people off. They won't forget all the way to November 2nd and who enabled this and did not speak out against it...

This will only increase the intensity to vote against the Borg.

Who would have thought the Muslims leaders had more common sense than our Democrat “leaders” who saw no problem with it. Half the damn Republicans in Washington saw no problem with it either.

What a Fu**ing waste our republic has become.

Rightsphere has it from Haaretz. Here is a link to the Haaretz story: http://www.haaretz.com/news/international/muslim-leaders-to-abandon-plans-for-ground-zero-community-center-1.308426

I just told hubby that Haaretz is like the NY Times of Israel, but is that right?

I certainly DO hope this is true!

They will probably not call it “Cordoba House”, and only build it 6 floors high.

You got it.

If true, this is very interesting. These people will do NOTHING unless it is in their own best interest. And having 16 hundred years of practice at being utter thugs, they’ll certainly not back down due to “bad press” or the negative sentiments of the American public. Let’s see if the story is factual. And don’t expect to get any truth from the MSM as to reasons.

“So while we’re all friends now, when do we get to build that pentecostal megachurch in Riyadh? When is that catholic cathedral going up in Dhahran?”

Or how about a synagogue at Mecca? Probably won’t see any of this. Remember—they are the ONLY true religion and we are all infidels.

Fellow Freepers, I have one word for you:

TAQIYYA

If you don't know what that word is or what it means, look it up. Because of the practice that word encourages, I wouldn't trust a muslim as far as I could throw my minivan.

Yes, Greg Gutfeld probably flipped this around. Before him, we had Bloomberg ramming it down our throats.
